Raw organic cacao nibs are becoming popular as the raw and wild way to eat chocolate. Unlike roasted cacao seeds, raw organic cacao nibs are made by simply pressing, peeling and breaking the raw cacao seeds to release the flavourful, chocolaty nibs inside. This means that they retain all the antioxidants and other important nutrients that are lost during the intense heat of the roasting process.
Raw organic cacao nibs contain many vitamins and minerals, including important antioxidants that protect the body form the damaging effects of free radicals. They are an excellent source of magnesium for heart health, optimal energy production and strong bones. Raw cacao nibs also contain substances that help relieve stress and combat depression.
Raw organic cacao nibs have a moorish bitter crunch that make a great alternative to satisfy the mid afternoon chocolate cravings! The Clever Kitchen loves to use in smoothies, in baked goods, pancakes, raw chocolate or simply sprinkled on dessert! When mixed with other Superfoods cacao nibs make a delicious herbal tea too.
To retain the maximum amount of health benefits when eating raw organic cacao nibs, avoid eating at the same time as dairy products. They have been shown to interfere with the body’s ability to absorb antioxidants.
